One thing I’ve always found challenging is creating recipes that get better as leftovers – we make some of our food for the week ahead of time on Sundays, and preserving quality/flavor is important to me so that we’re satisfied all week. Cold noodle salads have been fitting the bill lately, so I knew when Banza announced the #BanzaPlusPlants contest, this is what I would be whipping up!

A huge part of how I use gentle nutrition in my life is by considering how to incorporate protein/fat/fiber to make meals more satisfying. The chickpea pasta, edamame, and peanut butter in this salad make it more satiating and keep me full for longer! Plus, they taste great… which is my main consideration with food. Here’s how it’s done:
